Hi Linda,
I saw your posting on US Militaria Forum defending you g-grandfather. As a former Marine, I was angry at how all of the people in that forum were bad-mouthing him and his Marine Corps service, so I did some research on and elsewhere, and have put together a well-documented and accurate account of his service. (The first paragraph in his bio on this site is wrong- the HH in the Army during the Civil War was different guy with same name) Please let me know if you would like a copy, and please read my response on the militaria forum. Happy Holidays,
Frank Hollingshead

RE: Fred Satterman
I have a friend in Texas who's maiden name is Hollowell.
I don't belong to ancestry but I will look it up next time I'm at the library. I have noticed the different spellings on several sites that's I've looked at. You really have to have a lot of patience and resourcefullness when you start researching family past. How long have you been into geneology? I've started and stopped so many times I've lost count. Seriously been researching my maternal side for about 3 yrs. now. My one Aunt joins me in some of my searches. My eldest Aunt who remembers her Aunts and Uncles the best doesn't really want to be bothered with any of it. This is mostly a solo act. I really get a lot of enjoyment out of it personally. How about you?

RE: Fred Satterman
It's small enough that you know just about everyone, but big enough that you run into someone new at Walmart every now and then. It's about 2 hrs. from us. Nicer now that they've built the 2 lane, but still a mess if there is flooding (lots of bridges with water). Pretty town, but old. Not alot of new except up by the highway. Marceline, which is just up the road, is the boyhood home of Walt Disney.
Do you have a geneology library in town or close by? If you access their (free) there is a copy of Fred's WW1 registration card and a copy of his and Mae's marriage license.I don't know if you can use through your library branch. We used to, but now you have to go to the Geneology Library to use it.

RE: Fred Satterman
I don't know if there were any letters or not. I'll ask some of the family if they have any clue. My cousin is the one that had most of the old pics. His grandmother was Minnie West, Mae's sister. I'll let you know once I find out how to get in touch with him. Keep your fingers crossed.
Have you ever been to Brookfield, MO.?

RE: Fred Satterman
You are more than welcome. Glad I could shed some light on where he went. I live in Independence, MO.
Linn County, where Brookfield, Bucklin, Marceline,Linneus, is located, is taking family names for their book of the history of Linn County. I'm trying to put together some info about the West family. Since Fred and Mae lived there, maybe you could put something together. I could send you the info if you'd be interested. Deadline is Oct. 31.

RE: Fred Satterman
Almost forgot your other question. As far as I can tell by census records, Fred lived with his mother, single, until his marriage to Mae. He was They lived in Bucklin, MO. until his death. Even though she remarried later, she is buried next to him under the name Satterman in Brookfield.

RE: Fred Satterman
Linda, you can find all of Missouri death certificates for free at
they are posted up to 1965. That's where I found Fred's.

If you can't locate it, let me know and I'll send you a copy via e-mail.

Gr. Aunt Mae and Fred had no children. In fact, Mae was married once before Fred briefly, and once after Fred and never had children.

The little girl in the picture is Hattie Nickerson. She is the daughter of Mae's Aunt Stella (West)Nickerson. Stella and Mae's father Silas are half brother and sister. Silas is by his father's first wife and Stella by the 2nd wife.

What did you find on Fred besides his parents? I didn't know they were from Sweden.

Fred Satterman
Linda, it sounds like we have the same relative. The info I have is that Fred "Ropey" SAtterman married my great aunt Minta Mae West on MAy 20, 1924 in Bucklin, MO.Fred was born Dec.30, 1888 in Osage City, KS. to Andrew and Anna Marie Nelson. He died Aug. 20, 1949 in Brookfield. He worked in the Shaffer Coal Mine in Brookfield, MO. and was crushed to death by loose rock which fell on him and crushed his chest. He is buried next to Aunt Mae in Rose Hill Cem. Brookfield. Fred registered for the Armed Services during WW1 on June 5, 1917 in Wyandotte Co. KS. He was of medium build, light hair and blue eyes. I have his death certificate and his WW1 registration card. I also have a picture of him with my Aunt Mae and her neice Hattie Nickerson on their wedding day. Hope this helps with your research.
